6. Voting Without Address
The Vermont voter registration form requires a voter to finish this sentence: "My principal dwelling place is located at". Voters can respond with a residential address or a description. The Voter Registration FAQ includes clarifying language "The town clerk must be given enough information to determine whether you live in the town where you are registering, and in some communities, the clerk must decide what voting district you live in. It is therefore important to include the number, street name, and apartment number of your residence on the registration form. If you live in a dormitory or other institution you must include the dormitory or building name and room number, not just a box number, because the campus may be split between more than one district. If you also provide a mailing address, your physical address will not be disclosed on any publicly provided checklist." It also includes language for individuals who are experiencing homelessness: "If you are homeless you may register to vote in the town, and in the district within a town, that includes the place that you consider your principal dwelling place. The definition of residency applies in the same way to someone who is homeless as it does to persons who own or rent their principal dwelling place."
